Sun Provides 64-bit Java Plug-In For Linux
After years of complaints by its users, last month Adobe released 64-bit Flash for Linux. Now this month Sun Microsystems has come to the table with a Java plug-in that is compatible with 64-bit web browsers. This 64-bit plug-in is coming as part of Java SE 6 Update 12 Build 02, which was released last Friday. This 64-bit compatibility is for both Linux and Windows, while Sun's own Solaris operating system will pick up the 64-bit support once it has a 64-bit version of Firefox.
This update to Java can be found for 32-bit and 64-bit Linux here. This 64-bit plug-in news is good for those that have run into problems using IcedTea or the GCJ plug-in.
